That is amazing! I like the sleeper idea with PCs. In my case since I'm surrounded by too much modern useless stuff, I decided to go the opposite route and take retro guts but use it with as much modern tech as possible.
So far that's resulted in the socket 370 rig in my sig - but it's in a modern case with tempered glass side panel to bask in the glorious early 2000's PCB colors, due to +5v rail demands it's going to end up with a Corsair HX1200, already has working USB 2.0 under both Windows 98SE and 2000, and technically working USB 3.0 under Windows 2000 (although performance is limited to the PCI bus speed of 133 MB/s). SATA2 controller is used for a 256gb SSD.
Anyway this is your thread, and again I have to say well done and I'm very impressed!
